Vivisick is a Thrashcore punk band hailing from Tokyo, Japan. Formed in 1996 by bassist/vocalist Yuki and guitarist Sunao, Vivisick has become fairly prominent in their local scene but remains almost unheard of outside Japan.


Vivisick formed when Yuki and Sunao met and began placing "want ads" in record stores and magazines to find other willing members to start a band. The band soon had difficulty finding permanent members and establishing a good friendship with each other throughout the years due to the lack of propinquity between each other. Vivisick has since settled on a solid lineup, however. They released their first album, Respect and Hate, in 2008.
